Week 7 Beginning 13.7.20

This week, we are learning about Apostrophes for contraction.  Apostrophes of contraction show that letters have been removed and often two words have been combined into one E.g. do not/don't.  The apostrophe is put in the place where letters have been removed.

 

Words that are commonly contracted:

Not - wouldn't, shouldn't, couldn't, weren't, hadn't, hasn't

Will – I'll, we'll, you'll, they'll

Are- we're, you're, they're

Have - I've, we've, you've, they've

Had/would – I'd, you'd, he'd, she'd, we'd, who'd, they'd

 

So 'I do not like it' becomes 'I don't like it' and 'We are going on holiday' becomes 'We're going on holiday' etc.
